What Would Another Mother Runner Do?

Previously, on What Would Another Mother Runner Do (WWAMRD), we learned of the crafty daring of Ellison, who scared off an overfriendly, possibly threatening driver by pretending her Garmin was a wrist-mounted camera transmitting live images and location to the police. (We don’t make this stuff up!) This installment introduces you to Kelin, a mother runner with two kids we met in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, a few weeks ago. Kelin immediately caught our attention as she was wearing a knee-high, black “boot” and walking with a crutch. Dimity has a honing mechanism toward injured runners, so she swooped in and drew out Kelin’s story…

Just us girls at a stop. So a six-pack run may not be how everybody chooses to celebrate Halloween, but I'll happily don a costume for this for many years to come.

Beers, BAMRs and Pull-Ups, Oh My!

You may be able to guess this about me, but I’m not a big Halloween celebrator. Sure, I love to go trick-or-treating and see all the vampires and beauty queens and gumball machines, but getting my kids costumed up is enough effort for me. (Case in point: Ben, who wanted to be a king cobra. Seriously? We downsized to a generic lizard, but I’ve still got a lot of scales to pin on.)

I changed my tune, though, when I got an invite to the first annual six-pack run in my neighborhood.  The evite stated the details: running with a little drinking thrown in. Six stops, a beer at each one. Costumes encouraged…

Last Call for Pics for What Another Mother Runner Looks Like

Last Call for Pics for What Another Mother Runner Looks Like

Hey Mother Runners: wanted to let you know this is the last call to participate in the photo series of What Mother Runners Looks Like. Remember: it’s the one that shows that stretch marks and strength aren’t mutually exclusive, and that runners come in all shapes and sizes. All the directions are on this post. 

We have over 85 pictures (!) already, and I figured out how to make a slideshow–multitasking as I watched the Ironman World Championships today–and plan to get it up within 10 days or so. So you’ve got a week to get us your pics; put it on your todo list, and snap a shot next time you’re headed out on a run…

Winners Abound: Trek Accessories and Run Necklace

Even though I went to a Halloween party last night (dressed as a Boston Marathon runner complete with finisher’s medal and bib) and I’m headed to Tarjay today to buy our stash of candy for trick or treaters, I feel a bit like Santa: I have a lot of goodies to bestow. (My mind is also on December as I just booked our very first real family vacation: Using a Living Social voucher and United award miles, mi familia is headed to Mexico December 15-22. Ole, ole!)

First up: a bevy of cycling accessories from Trek (maker of Dimity’s beloved Lyle, who will speed her over 112 miles at Ironman Coeur d’Alene next June)…

Racing (and Slowing down) in 2013

Racing (and Slowing down) in 2013

As I made the snap decision to lace up my shoes and head for the trails, I figured I’d either end up getting sick—definitely a poor prospect a few days out from a four-day work trip to Chicago—OR I’d revive my bone-tired body and jumbled mind. I was really hoping for the latter.

When the window of running time presents itself, as it did Wednesday about an hour before my kids got off the bus, you take it. Even, it seems, when a lack of sleep in recent days and ever-so-slight sniffling (is it allergies or a cold coming on?) leaves you wondering if maybe, just maybe you should just forget it and try again the next day…
